Ivan Marx's The Legend Of Bigfoot - Special Edition

something has gone horribly wrong 8-p
Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

A painstakingly researched, enhanced and extended cut of Ivan Marx controversial documentary. More informative and a good bit creepier than the original cut. Marx encounters a small female sasquatch, ancient American Indian markings, witnesses who have encountered mysterious "U.F.O.s"and headless creatures with glowing eyes, which would later come to be known as "Mothmen".
Some say Marx was far ahead of his time. Some say he was a fraud. You be the judge!!

This movie is part of the collection: Sci-Fi / Horror

Subject: 80-percent nature documentary, 20 percent bigfoot hoax
Our prejudice is to give a film a low rating because it is a hoax. The dilemma with "The Legend of Bigfoot" is that it is not really a bad film. As nature documentaries go, it is pure, wild, and sentimental. Marx was a fine filmographer. The home movies of his coyote pups, and his cougar companion are unparalleled. The bull moose, "Monarch of the North", and its harem are rare, even by National Geographic standards.

And then Marx interjects segments of a limping "bigfoot", with part of its ripped costume near its ankle flapping. Even though we only have other unproven bigfoot films to measure these by, a la Patterson-Gimlin, we note that Marx's bigfoots are rather gracile and not at all tall or muscular. Also, the face closeups are problematic because they are not well defined. Show me any closeup of any primate face, and they are invariably well defined. Marx's bigfoots' faces are completely covered with hair (said no primate, ever!). This means everything that is not an eyeball or a lip is covered with black hair.

We could talk all day about the relative believability of his bigfoots, but getting back to whether or not this movie is good, Marx's own narration is like listening to a combination of Jed Clampett and Hank Hill. "I felt like a damned fool!"

Marx was obviously talented. He also captured precious images of the Eskimo (he uses both terms "Inuit" and Eskimo", leading me to believe they are not synonymous). He didn't have to hang his career on bigfoot, but perhaps using bigfoot as a hook was the way to get people to appreciate his real legacy as a nature filmographer. Keep in mind this film began in the late 1950s, the data point being a calendar in his kitchen, and ending in the mid 1960s. So, we're talking an interest in bigfoot that preceded Patterson-Gimlin.

Subject: THE LEGEND OF BIGFOOT, special guest star Bigfoot
Ivan Marx's "The Legend of Bigfoot" in more of a wilderness film than it is about Bigfoot. Compiled from years of Ivan's research about animals and the great outdoors, spliced with new footage depicting Bigfoot for commercial reasons, as the mystery of Bigfoot was a hot debate at the time. And kind of still is. This film is an interesting watch for both reasons, but it may not be for everyone.

Subject: Proof at last ?
Maybe just me but actually enjoyed this. Ok a bit basic but hey the guy never said hes a biologist.
I love all mysteries and research same a lot.
While not great film imagine if he' d had digital cameras etc then people might not be so quick to write it off. New species are being found all over the planet in places never before explored, so I'd like to think in time he will be prooved right.

Less confusing than short version but both too long. Eyes @>53:00.
